Sections of the Group

Beavers The Beaver Colony is for boys and girls aged 6 to 8 years old. The Beaver motto is "Fun and Friends", which describes their aims. Swimming instruction forms a part of the programme, as they prepare to be able to swim 50m by the time they are 10½.
Cubs The Cub Pack is for boys and girls aged 8 to 10½. They follow a more structured programme, working towards proficiency badges, and they have the opportunity to sample river and camping activities as they get older.
Scouts The Scout Troop is for boys and girls aged 10½ to 14½. As well as the normal Scout training programme, including outdoor activities and camping, they become proficient in canoeing, rowing, sailing and all areas of seamanship.
Explorer Scouts The Explorer Scout Unit is for young people aged 14½ to 18. They are self-motivating and governing, carrying out an adventurous programme under the guidance of their adult leaders. They also pass on their knowledge and skills, assisting with other sections in the Group.
